my first van.....
#1
Hi All,

Just about to start up my own business which means i need to buy my first van!

The Berlingo seems to be the van of choice, and I've got my eye on a 07 1.6 HDI. These vans look well rounded, reliable and ideal for what I need it for.

Now I need to research this site for details of the weak points and cam belt change details for this van, which I assume is the mkII version.

Many thanks,

shakey

Hi Shakey & welcome.It is a mk11.The most important thing on an HDi is good quality clean oil.Change @ 1/2 recommended intervals to keep the turbo happy & in 1 piece.Give the whole vehicle a good birthday incl change ALL oils & fluids.Good luck.:thumbsup::thumbsup:

The biggest disadvantage with the van is the stupid amount of insurance most companies charge!
If you went for a MultiSpace Forte you will still have much the same space but without the heavy
premium.

I'm use to group 20 cars, so I'm sure I can take the cost of a van...!? Anyone care to advise a good van insurance co for a 41yr old based in the south with 9 years no claims and 3 points(costly but spirited GTR driving!).

Thank you.

I wouldn't say my insurance is a stupid amount, £300 a year for business insurance.
